Hi Andy,
Hi Wim,

you are actually doing what is best to help us right now:
Discussion certain options we have so we can make it right.
You can also help us and come up with more material to educate the
masses and the public about what freedom of software actually means.

I agree with Andy that tax-deducability is not the only and most
important criteria we have.

I also think that Wim has a point in that we are trying to make it right
from the beginning and not hit legal barriers soon after establishin one
form or another.

Andy: Do you know more details about how Greenpeace is organised?
It would be interesting to see how they do it.

Regards and ADVthanksANCE,
